We don't have to tell you Melbourne has a number of great coffee houses, quite simply Melbourne's coffee culture is now more notorious than the great Italian espresso machines from which it sprouted. Or so we think, but whether you're a latte lover, cappuccino champion, flat white Karen, long-black Lenoard, if you enjoy it cold brew, filtered, slow-roasted, poured over or steeped to perfection! Wild Timor Coffee Co is still at work, delivering their signature range of Timorese coffee, with caramel, chocolate and cheery sweet notes providing you with a great coffee where every bean gives back to supporting Timor-Leste coffee growers and their community.

"Wild Timor Coffee was formed as a means of buying the coffee at a good price...We offer a fair price by matching and raising the price of other buyers. We then bring it back to Melbourne where it is roasted and sold to our amazing customers."

- Emily, Wild Timor Coffee

Founded in 2012 by Shannon, Cameron, and the two Tom's, soldiers in the Australian Army, they were deployed in Timor-Leste to help peacekeeping efforts during that time. The boys developed friendships with people in the communities there and were indignant at the poor treatment and exploitation at the hands of coffee brokers, who offered far less than was fair for an excellent coffee product.

Now 8 years on, the team behind Wild Timor Coffee Co has a thriving cafe here in Melbourne and has contributed to various projects helping the Timor-Leste community. Including raising $5000 to provide school uniforms to students at the Oecussee Enclave boarding school, who are helping to provide students with amazing opportunities & life lessons, providing more education and training to the next generation of advocates and leaders in Timor-Leste.
